Protecting Jemima Mount- An OTNJ Sponsored Volunteer Project

One of the lightning rod issues in the battle over the MAP was the damage that has been done at Jemima Mount. It was used an example and pictured in nearly every newspaper article about the MAP. Ironically, Jemima Mount had already been closIMG_2322ed to motor vehicles for well over a decade. However, no other actions were taken and damage continued unabaited. Open Trails NJ was founded on the premise of creating practical solutions that will actually SOLVE these issues. Open TrailsĀ has proposed a protection project to the DEP and this project was accepted. We will once and for all protect Jemima and remove it as a talking point for those who want to eliminate recreational access in the forest. To accomplish this goal we will be sponsoring a volunteer event on June 5th. We will only be able to accept a limited number of volunteers for this activity so we will take volunteers on a first come, first serve basis. If you are interested in attending, please email us at info@opentrailsnj.org Additional information will be forthcoming.
